Stacks Meet the BLACK DRAGON event at Aintree on 26th June 2014 will feature in the International Festival of Business calendar.
Stack has invited the notorious cybercriminal Matthew Beddoes, known as the Black Dragon, to conduct a live demonstration of his hacking skills in front of an audience of its customers and security specialists.
Beddoes was jailed for masterminding an attempt to hack into the UN’s computer systems to steal £6.5 million worth of carbon credits. He stole the credits for a broker who sold $89,000 worth to BP before the offence was discovered. Beddoes received a three year jail term for his part in the theft. He is now a poacher turned gamekeeper swapping his black hat for an (almost) white one
Our security partners, including Watchguard and Kaspersky, will be in attendance and show how their products can provide defences against Beddoes black arts.
There will be manufacturers’ technical staff on hand to answer your questions and offer advice on topics such as securing Wi-Fi to PCI compliance standards and the latest IPCCTV and VoIP platforms
